Miss USA & Teen USA 2021 will be held in 2021! The contestant chosen as the winner will be crowned Miss USA 2021 and represent USA at Miss Universe 2021. The contestant chosen as Miss Teen USA will serve as a spokesmodel for the Miss Teen USA and Miss USA Organization.
Each contestant will compete in three equal phases of preliminary competition: active wear/swimsuit, evening gown, and interview. The scores from the preliminary phases of competition are added up, and the contestants with the highest composite scores become semifinalists. The number of semifinalists will be between 10 and 15, and will be determined by the total number of contestants in the competition.
